Transforming Carbon. Transforming the Future.

Can we transform carbon into useful products, thereby reducing the impact of carbon dioxide (CO2) to our environment?

About The NRG

As part of COSIA’s commitment to environmental innovation, we’ve partnered with XPRIZE Foundation and NRG to challenge the world to reimagine what we can do with carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by accelerating the development of technologies that transform CO2 into valuable products.

Support of this initiative is one of many ways that COSIA’s members are demonstrating climate leadership, and we couldn’t be more proud of the amazing work underway as teams push to the finish of the NRG COSIA Carbon XPRIZE.
